It was about an activist killed by an Israeli bulldozer during a 2003 demonstration in Gaza. The show then opened at the Royal Court Theatre in London. A move was planned to the New York Theatre Workshop, but in the Fall of 2005, it was canceled. This was amidst rumors that the Workshop feared possible response to the show’s political content.
